This show seems underrated to me--just a look at the second setlist shows that it was a special night. Sure, Jerry's vocals are rough, but that's standard for that era. The Scarlet has one of the best Scarlet jams I've heard. It just keeps going. This show is subtle, smart, sharp. You can listen to it a hundred times and not get bored. I don't think the same can be said for some of their most famous shows, like Cornell '77. The early 80's don't sound smooth on a quick listen, but there was a lot going on below the surface.

Pulling in out of the wild West with a solid Jack Straw, the Dead delivered a solid, if not totally exploratory or transcendent, show in Burlington, VT. Wish I was there! I like the delvings into new material, especially the "Maybe You Know" (1st time I'd ever heard that one). Scarlet > Fire is sweet as is Estimated. Jerry loses some steam & creativity in Eyes.

Worth getting for S>F>E & Ramble On.

Subject: bad cut in Dew!
Surprised no one mentioned the brutal cut in Dew in this source. It cuts out well before the first guitar solo and doesn't cut back in until the end of the outro jam. Go with one of the aud sources!

Subject: best show of tour
at least i thought so. REALLY small venue, versus the HUGE other halls they played that tour. dew out of space, really nice. and healy did a class on how to tape the dead before the show.

This is a very unique transition. Never heard one remotely like it. Really cool to hear something totally new.

Yes the guitars are a bit low in the mix...oh well nothing is perfect. Great show for 1983.

Subject: Too bad about the guitars
Fitzy77 is totally right: the guitars are unfortunately low in the mix. (Or is it rather that the vocals are too high, and everything else recedes?) The AUD version of this show captures the overall balance of the band pretty well, but I'd still pick this version for clarity.

Subject: Solid Show.
Don't know why noone has jumped on this SBD recording of a very solid and under-rated show. Weir sounds somewhat "horse" on his vocals but Jerry and especially Brent are spot-on this night. This was a high energy show that would make a good addition to your Spring '83 collection. Sound is good but not astonishing. Garcia's guitar is a tad quiet in the mix for my taste but it gets better as show progresses. Ramble on Rose fans need apply for this one.
